ALUMNI NUMBER President's Page THE FUTURE OF MARYVILLE The advance of Maryville has of late become so in- creasingly remarkable that we are all wondering and ask- ing, "To what will all this development come?" Three years ago there were ninety-nine more preparatory stu- dents than college students; but last year seven-tenths of the enrollment were college students, and during the cur- rent year at least six hundred students, or eight-tenths of the entire enrollment, will be college men and women. The college reputation built up bv a century of scholarly work has recently been still further strengthened by the recognition by the accrediting agency of Maryville' s standard-reaching competency and efficiency. The un- wavering and self-denying persistence that the College shows in keeping its college bills at an almost unbeliev- ably low figure, and the zeal that it shows in the adminis- tration of its methods of student-help, at a time when the great increase in the size of college bills throughout the nation has shut the doors of college opportunity to thousands who in former days could have secured a col- lege training, has attracted notable and nation-wide atten- tion to Maryville and to the opportunities that it affords. The result is that Maryville has now the largest enroll- ment of college students that any institution of merely college rank has in the State of Tennessee. The time is apparently not far off when Maryville College will be an institution of seven or eight hundred exclusively college students, and the preparatory school will have fulfilled its appointed mission and will have completed its century- long and most honorable service to the Southern Appala- chians. These then, are very important days of transition. The moral and religious values of the past must be con- served and added to in these transitional days. At the same time Maryville must seek to keep abreast of the best forward movements of the day. Among the plans to be furthered in the immediate future are certain ones that contemplate the development of pre-legal and pre- engineering and commerofe courses. And the general lib- rary must be made far more truly than even at present the work-shop and general laboratory of the institution. But time and space will not suffice even barely to ALUMNI NUMBER mention the hopes and endeavors of Maryville men and women as they look into the future. It has been said that prayer and provender will hinder no man's journey. We add to this alliterative pair of men's adjutants, pray- er and provender, a third aid to progress, and that is, planning. As in the past, Maryville will continue to plan and to pray and to plead for provender for her charges ; while, on His part, we are assured that a kind Providence will continue to answer Maryville's prayers, to realize Maryville's plans, and to provide the provender that this healthy institution must consume or perish! SAMUEL TYNDALE WILSON. NEWS OF THE OPENING YEAR Exact figures on the enrollment for the year 1923-1924 are, of course, not yet available, for there are always a few stragglers who come in ]ate and there will he a considerable additional enrollment in the second semester. However, the college enrollment to date exceeds the total for all of last year. There are at present (Sep- tember 19) 560 college students and approximately 150 preps. The freshman class numbers 257. Because of some unexpected withdrawals and of the restrictions of the new quality-credit system, the senior class enrollment is not so large as was expected. It will probably not exceed seventy. A number of faculty additions and changes have been made, strengthening and increasing the teaching 1 facilities of the College. Maryville is now qualified to offer the full curriculum of the Smith-Hughes course in Home Econsmics so that graduates of the College are fully qualified to occupy teaching positions under the provisions of the Smith-Hughes law. Only two other institutions in the State, The University of Tennessee and George Peabody College for Teachers, are so qualified. Another progressive measure is the increasing of the facilities and faculty in the departments of Mathematics and Physics which is the first step in the program of building up a strong pre- engineering curriculum. With Professors Knapp and J. A. Hyden in charge of this project, it is sure to be carefully planned and thoroughly worked out. NEWS OF THE CLASSES 1871 C. E. Tedford of New Carlisle, Ohio, was in Maryville for his vacation, preaching in New Providence Church on Septem- ber 2. 1«74 The only class in the list to have a 100% record on payment of Alumni Dues.

XXII OCTOBER 1,1923 NO. 5 OFFICERS OF THE MARYVILLE COLLEGE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION M. B. Crum, '17, President, Maryville F. D. Brown, '22, Vice-President, Nashville H. E. Orr, '12, Secretary-Treasurer, Maryville President Crum Secretary Orr AN ALUMNI MAGAZINE We are sending- this Bulletin out as a sort of sample or specimen copy. Would you like to have such an alumni news exchange . come to you regularly, in bi-monthly or ciuarterly issues? Would it have any value for you in the way of interest and as a reminder of old college associations? We don't intend to issue such a bulletin again this year. We haven't the money. There is no one free to edit it. We don't even know that anyone wants it. THE PURPOSE OF THIS BULLETIN S ALUMNI NUMBER But our idea is that the real basis for our usefulness to the College is to come out cf an intelligent interest in what is taking place on the Hill, an interest coming out of genuine information about the development of the College and about the events of athletics and student enterprises. And, moreover, there will be a real value in having news of one another, *not of our contemporaries only but of those who walked the Hill before our own day and after it. In other words, we believe that the real life current of a con"- tinued, enthusiastic Alumni Movement can best be carried in the channel of an Alumni Magazine. If you believe in the value of such a publication; if you, for ycur own part, would like to have it; if you have any schemes or suggestions regarding it; if you have anything at all pro or con to say about it, write to Secre- tary H. E. Orr, College Station, Maryville, Tennessee, and give us the benefit of your opinion. In the first place, the one-dollar dues as now paid by less than one-th ; rd of the alumni HOW IS SUCH wil1 never do it- Even the one-dollar dues if paid by all tha alumni would scarcely be A MAGAZINE adequate. The general practice among alumni associations issuing magazines is to POSSIBLE? assess an annual dues of from two and a half dollars to five dollars with, in some cases, special rates to married couples of alumni. If we were to try the quarterly p!an as a starter, we be- lieve that dues of two dollars and a half, or married couples of alumni at four dollars, would be sufficient tc finance the proposi- tion, provided as many as four hundred regular payers of dues can be recruited. There is not only the expense of printing and mailing but there is the greater expense of compensation to the editor. But sometime soon we should be able to arrange with the College for the services of a part-time secretary whose salary would be assumed, proportionately with the division of his time between his two employments, by the Association and the College. This Bulletin is costing approximately $75 for 1250 copies. We are having 1250 printed so as to have enough for all the alumni and for a considerable number of former students and former members of the faculty. A regular issue would call for perhaps not more than 600 copies. If issued four times a year, the cost for printing would be thus about $250 to $300 and the secretary-editor, doing his work and the routine work of the Alumni Office, which is constantly growing in volume, should have at least $500 to $600 yearlv salary from the Association. But four hundred alumni paying two dollars and a half annually (is it too much to hope?) would mean one thousand dol- lars, or slightly more than the estimated cost of the magazine and its editor. Moreover, a live secretary should be able to add mater- ially to the revenue of the Association by means of general adver- tising in the magazine from such interests as professional schools, office supply houses, printing- companies, and the like. Probably the first four or five issues would have to go to all of the alumni irrespective of whether dues were received, or not in order to establish a patronage, but after the first year there ALUMNI NUMBER should be no free copies, on the John-Smith theory that those who won't work shan't eat. What are the gains to come from such a magazine? THE GAINS I- The news value is obvious. Each Ttrwruvi QTTPW issue should contain numerous items of VKVM SUtn interest regarding the alumni. A II. It should serve as a medium for dis- MAGAZINE cussicn of college problems, being per- fectly free, thus within the family, to discuss Maryville problems and policies. III. It should furnish the alumni a clearer idea of their oppor- tunity to serve the College. IV. It should afford a means of mutual helpfulness between alumni in such matters as securing positions and providing* employment. V. It should stimulate an interest in boosting the College, par- •ticularly by using- legitimate means of interesting promising students in Maryville. VI. It should serve to acquaint each alumnus with the whole body of alumni, not merely with three or four classes with which he is contemporary, thus providing him a broader interest in Maryville College. VII. It should find its finest value in keeping aglow the warmth of that intangible something which we call the Maryville spirit. Do you want such a magazine? If you do, let us hear from' you. And keep it in mind until next June with the view to bring- ing about some definite action. HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT ALUMNI DAY? At the request of the Executive Committee of SJAMFTHTIVP ^ ne Alumni Association, the Commencement SUlVlnaJlirNtr program for 1924 has been modified so that Wednesday of Commencement week 1 is to be NEW Alumni Day. Instead of a hurried luncheon nn Commencement day as the sole chance for an alumni get-together, we are now privileged to announce the 1924 Alumni Banquet for Wednesday night, June 4, 1924, at 8 o'clock, in Pearsons Hall. Plans are going forward for a program full of interest and spirit. Of course, the Class of 1924 will be there, our honored guests! and with the night before u? and the old friends beside us, we should have a rousing and profitable time. The Senior Class Play, which has always come on Wednesday night, will be on Tue?dav : night. ' The other events of the Com- mencement calendar will be moved forward correspondingly. Most likely, Class Day will be observed on Wednesday afternoon; but the day, Wednesday, will be given over to class reunions, and get- together parties of the folks who used to be it on the Hill. 16 ALUMNI NUMBER In regard to class reunions, may we say a word? CLASS Properly, of course, the ultimate suggestion for these reunions must come from the classes themselves, but we have this general •REUNIONS 5 cheme to propose, which, if successfully operated this year, might become a sort of outline of custom in the matter. Our alumni are so widely scattered that frequent reunions, particularly of the earlier classes, are difficult. However, we sug- gest that at least the following modest scheme of reunions might be tried in 1924, calling back to the Hill as many as possible of: The Class of 1874, the fifty-year class, The Class of 1884, the forty-year class, The Class of 1894, the thirty-year class, The Class of 1899, the twenty-five-year class, The Class of 1904, the twenty-year class, The Class of 1909, the fifteen-year class, The Class of_1914, the ten-year class, The Class of 1919, the five-year class, And, of course, 1922 and 1923 will want to come back to see 1924 assume the sheepskin. Plans are already under way for two or three of these re- unions. We hope that at least those suggested above can be arranged for. But the BIG REUNION is for all of us. THF "RTP Even if you don't belong to one of the classes listed above, you will feel at home on the Hill and at the banquet. You will hear TtEUNION about it again during the year. The plates will probably cost one dollar each and should be reserved some two or three weeks in advance. But you'll be informed of the details in good time. The point now is: make your plans so as to be able to come back. Come back Alumni Day, June 4, 1924. You'll not be bled for money. You'll not be forced to make a speech against your will. You'll not have to do any penance for the sins of your college days. You'll simply be expected to have a genuine good time with the best folks on earth, the alumni of Maryville College. THE NEW GYMNASIUM The new gymnasium building is going; up rapidly. The con- crete foundations are completed and the frame work is being con- structed at such a rate as to assure its completion by November 1. The building is to be 110 by 108 feet in area. The playing court is to be 60 by 90 feet, the regulation dimensions for basket- ball. Baskets will also be placed along the sides of the court so that two practice games may be played at the same time. There is to be a space 108 feet long and 25 feet wide on each side of the court where the bleachers are to be placed. There will be space in the clear between the ends of the floor and the end walls, ALUMNI NUMBER U twelve feet at the front and six feet at the rear. The floor itself is to be of maple with a subfloor and joists resting on concrete walls twelve feet apart. The building- is to be set on a solid concrete wall 14 inches thick, with the five outer inches of thickness left exposed so as to receive the brick veneer, which should be added soon. The building is located within 60 feet of Bartlett Hall on the side next to Court Street. This close proximity to the old gymna- sium will make the dressing rooms and showers in the old building conveniently accessible. As soon as it is completed, the new building will be used in the day time for girls' physical training classes and, of course, all varsity basketball games will be played in it. The pledges to the Athletic Fund have warranted us in borrowing the money so as to make this building an immediate benefit. It's usefulness v/ill begin the moment it is completed, and when it is brick veneered, which can be done at an expense of about $3,500, it will be a real ornament to the campus.

THE REED ROWAN MEMORIAL FUND The Class of 1922 is in the process of raising a fund which is to commemorate their regard for their classmate, Reed Rowan. This fund, when secured, will become a part of the Alumni and Former Students' Athletic Fund. No finer, cleaner example cf the real Maryville man and athlete than Reed Rowan has even b een on the Hill. By his fine Christian manhood and earnest hard-working spirit in the class- room, on the diamond and track, and in the Glee Club and Y. M. C. A. and Ministerial Association, he left a wholesome memory in the hearts of all who knew him. His classmates, with a peculiar advantage of intipiate acquain- anceship, and so with a peculiar appreciation of his worth, have undertaken this memorial project with the feeling that the man and his record are worth commemorating. We shall all watch '22's project with sympathetic interest. Twenty members of the class have subscribed $835. 14 ALUMNI NUMBER THE SUMMER'S CAMPAIGN A glance at the list of contributors to the Alumni Athletic Fund which we are presenting by classes will show that 1923 has passed all the rest of us in the number of contributors. Mighty good work from the youngsters, bless their hearts! Thirty-five of them have pledged already and seme have promised pledges just a little later. Their total amount pledged is $1230 to date, which shows an average pledge of approximately $35. The less said about the summer campaign for the fund, per- haps, the better. The pledges simply didn't come in as we thought Ave had a right to expect. These who did pledge did it with the finest spirit of loyalty, and we feel that it would be sadly unfair to imply that those who did not pledge are therefore disloyal and recreant. We are convinced that the average Maryville College man is as loyal as the next one, and that his reasons for not con- tributing to the needs of the College are earnestly considered. However, we continue to need money. If the alumni who have made no pledge knew just how badly we do need more pledges to complete the program of improvement, we believe many more of them would pledge, even at a sacrifice. If a pledge card convenient at hand will be an accommodation just now, here's one: Note: The following form of subscription may, of course, be modi- fied as to dates, amounts, and conditions of payments, to conform to the convenience of the subscriber. In order to secure for Maryville College the erection of a gymna- sium building and the provision, of permanent grand stands and a track in connection with the new Athletic Field, I hereby agree to pay to the Executive Committee of the Alumni Association of Maryville College as a part of the Alumni and Former Students' $50,000 Athletic Fund the sum of $ in amounts and at times as follows: $ by July 1, 1924; $ by July 1, 1925; $ by July 1, 1926; $ by July 1, 1927. Date Name Address ALUMNI NUMBER 15 FINE WORK One of the finest exhibitions of the Maryville spirit seen lately came from the local American Legion Post, a large number of whose members are alumni and former students of the College. When the Legion learned that the Alumni Association is not going to have enough money on hand to buy the seats for the new gymnasium, they proposed to turn the receipts of their Armistice Day program over to the Alumni Association to be applied on the purchase price of these seats. Their proposition is to stage a minstrel show in the new gymnasium at night and to turn the entire receipts over to us. Moreover, they propose to take over the advertising of the King College game which is scheduled for that day and to turn over to us the cash receipts. In addition to these two major items of their program, they propose to give us all profits on their street •concessions for the day. As an association we should be deeply grateful for this splen- did offer of assistance from the Legion. Without this help we should have been very hard put to it to have provided bleachers for the building. Let's make Armistice Day, November 10, a big day. Plan to come back to the Hill that day to see the varsity in action against the spectacular King College team, and to help the Legion with this fine contribution to the completion of the new gymnasium. ALUMNI DUES An alumni association is as strong as the strength of its list ■of dues-paying members. As has been pointed out elsewhere in this bulletin, the solution of the financial problems of our associa- tion will have to come ultimately through an increased annual assessment. But for the present year we have the one-dollar dues, and there are problems of finance in the program of a working and growing organization such as ours is coming to be which cannot be avoided nor wished away. Only 211 of the 800 living alumni have paid this year's dues. If there is a slip of paper in your copy of this bulletin stating that your dues for the year are not yet received, please take heed thereto and so help with the carrying out of this year's program. 16 ALUMNI NUMBER NEWS OF THE CLASSES (Continued from page six) 1913 Christine Alexander is assistant curator in the Department of Antiquities in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City.

Through the fault cf no one but the Alumni Editor there Tiasn't been as much alumni news as there nrght have been; but, in spite of the danger that lurks in golden premises, we hope to do "better during the coming year. The matter of alumni news aside, however, we should like to commend the Echo to you fcr its general news value. The fellows 24 ALUMNI NUMBER who have it in hand for the coming- year are hustlers with a fine enthusiasm for their task. Verton Queener, '24, the editor, is a first-rate, all-round college man with a fine head for organization and a splendid ability for getting results. He was business mana- ger of the 1923 Chilhowean, and is president of the Student Council and treasurer of the Y. M. C. A. Robert M. ' 'Bob' ' Baldwin, '25, the business manager, has been business-managing one thing and another from the tender age of three years. He has already made things hum to the extent that for the first time in the history of the publication an issue was fresh off the press ready to greet the incoming students on Tuesday morning, the first day of the college year. These boys are going to put the Echo over in a big way this year. It will be worth your $1.25 several times over to have it coming each week with nev/s of athletics, student activities, and the progress of the College. Baldwin is guaranteeing thirty issues for the year, at least four of them eight-page numbers. If you want the College newspaper for the year, send your check for $1.25 to Robert M. Baldwin, Business Manager, The Highland Echo, College Station, Maryville, Tennessee. As to alumni news, help us by keeping us informed as to what you do and as to what fortune and fate bring to you. Above all else, if you get married, or strike an cil well, or have to pay in- come tax, or get elected to the legislature, or get run over by a ford, or change your address, let us know — it's news.
